Austin ISD’s Student Dress Code is in place to maintain a safe, respectful and positive learning environment and to model good citizenship.
All clothing should be appropriate to the student’s age, the school setting and weather conditions. Both students and parents share the responsibility for the student's attire because clothing often sets the pattern for behavior.
Students are required to use good judgment, to respect themselves and others, and to demonstrate modesty in selecting attire.
